I was thinking about writing a PAM module to issue your tokens on
login, but I'm completely new to Coda and still setting up our server
so I have no idea of the feasibility, etc.  I can let the list know
as i progress, but OOC, why would you want it as your primary
authentification (sp?) method, as opposed to using an existing
method -- say a /etc/passwd or LDAP -- and using PAM to
keep the passwords between Coda and the primary Auth method
in sync, as well as to issue tokens on login...?
